Skin difference?

Is there a difference in skin material between what was used in the late 90's and early 2000's? I've been told there is, and there is a big improvement beginning in 2000. True?

I read something about that here, but don't remember, except there was a difference.

Attached is Airstream's history of aluminum... It was published in 2007, and shows really no difference since 1994, in terms of the alloy or thickness.

That was about the time Airstream switched from applying clearcoat themselves to using pre-coated aluminum from Alcoa.
